Machine learning (11) -- logistic regression

Keywords: Python Machine Learning

Classification algorithm - logistic regression

[also an iterative method, self updating w]

Linear input to classification problem:

Input: the formula of linear regression is used as the input of logical regression

sigmoid function:

Logistic regression formula: [that is, how sigmoid converts input into probability value]

e: 2.71

Z = result of regression

Output: probability value can also be obtained

Loss function and optimization of logistic regression

It is the same as the principle of linear regression, but because it is a classification problem, the loss function is different and can only be solved by gradient descent

[when the target value is a class, the closer the probability is to 1, the smaller the loss function]  

[which category has few samples in the second category, and the judgment probability refers to this category]


[the target value is zero, and the closer the probability is to 1, the greater the loss function]

  [logistic regression only judges whether a category is or not, and judges the probability of belonging to a category. h (x) all refers to judging a category, so the image is opposite, so the above situation can occur]

[similar to information entropy, the smaller the better]

[it is also to update the weight]  

Comparative analysis of loss function:



sklearn.linear_model.LogisticRegression(penalty = 'l2', C = 1.0) [with regularization]

Logistic regression classifier

coef_: regression coefficient

C: Regularization gradient

penalty: regularization term

Application: [only applicable to category II]

  • Advertising click through rate
  • Judge the user's gender
  • Predict whether users will buy a given product category
  • Judge whether a comment is positive or negative

[logistic regression is a powerful tool to solve binary classification problems]


Tumor prediction in benign and malignant breast cancer

Download address of original data:

Data Description:

(1) 699 samples, a total of 11 columns of data. The first column uses the retrieved id, the last 9 columns are the medical characteristics related to tumor, and the last column represents the value of tumor type.

(2) Contains 16 missing values, use "?" Mark.

Target value:

Malignant tumor was selected as the target value as a positive example

technological process:

  1. Online data acquisition tool (pandas)
  2. Data missing value processing and standardization
  3. LogisticRegression estimator process

    lg = LogisticRegression(C=1.0), y_train)


    y_predict = lg.predict(x_test)

    print("Accuracy:", lg.score(x_test, y_test))

    print("Recall rate:", classification_report(y_test, y_predict, labels=[2, 4], target_names=["Benign", "malignant"]))#Remember label

    return None

The results show that:

When it comes to cancer, we're thinking about recall rates
